The fiancée of the murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi has revealed his last words to her that & # 39; it will not last long & # 39; just before he entered the Saudi consulate and never returned.
Hatice Cengiz went to the consulate at the Washington Post writer and waited outside for him while brutally murdered by a hit group.
She can not leave her house now without a bodyguard and is under supervision, reports the French magazine Paris Match.
The 59-year-old went to the consulate in Istanbul on October 2 last year to collect divorce papers from his previous wife for the couple's upcoming wedding.
Yesterday, a Turkish police report reported that Ms. Cengiz could also be a second victim of the murder if the murderers knew she was waiting outside or if she had gone in to find out why he had not returned.
Now Ms. Cengiz says she is under supervision and must avoid crowded parts of her hometown of Istanbul and Istanbul must have a bodyguard when she leaves the house.

The 36-year-old told the Paris Match that because the remains of her fiancé were not found, she could not mourn his death.
She also said that the writer thought he would not be in the Saudi consulate for long, but after an hour she began to worry.
She described his last words to her and said to the magazine: & # 39;[He said] "Wait for me, it will not last long".
& # 39; An hour later I began to worry. But I thought maybe he was talking to them, thanked … He looked so happy. & # 39;
Mr. Khashoggi did not know that his life was in danger when he went to the consulate and was only afraid that his passport would be taken by the Saudis, she added.
Mrs. Cengiz said: "He did not know for a moment [he was under threat]. What he feared, however, was that if he went to the consulate, he would confiscate his passport or be sent back to his native country.
& # 39; For a journalist it is costly. They could also have tried to send him back to Arabia, which was unlikely because it would have cost the agreement of the Turkish authorities. & # 39;
Mr. Khashoggi first tried to use a scanned document to prove his divorce from his Saudi wife so that he could marry Mrs Cengiz but was told that he needed the official document and had to return to the consulate in Istanbul.

& # 39; But he was warmly welcomed by those present who knew him. They were happy to see him.

CCTV footage is reportedly showing that the body parts of Jamal Khashoggi were brought to the consul residence in Saudi Arabia in bags and suitcases the day he was murdered
Former Saudi newspaper editor, Khashoggi, lived in Washington DC more than a year after he said the Saudi authorities had told him to stop tweeting.
American intelligence officials believe that the Crown Prince ordered an operation to assassinate Mr. Khashoggi, but Riyadh rejected accusations that the de facto ruler of the kingdom was involved.
A Turkish police report publishes in the local media and said the researchers believe that the dismembered body of Mr. Khashoggi from the consulate where he was murdered was brought to the nearby consul general where his mortal remains were burned.
The Turkish media agency, Anadolu, reported yesterday that the consul general's residence had two wells and a gas and wood floor oven that could reach a temperature of more than 1000 degrees and destroyed all DNA traces.
After making countless contradictory statements about the fate of Mr. Khashoggi, Riyad said he had been killed and his body dismembered when negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed.

Referring to police sources, the Turkish media said that the 59-year-old dismembered body was being carried from the consulate, where he was murdered in cases and bags to the consul general's residence where his mortal remains were burned
Despite the investigation of Turkey to the consulate of the kingdom in Istanbul, the residence of the consul and various other locations, the remains of Khashoggi have not been found.
The murder of Mr. Khashoggi has severely strained ties between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, although Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan has good ties with the Saudi monarch, King Salman.
Erdogan has said that the killing of Khashoggi was ordered by the highest level of Saudi leadership and has repeatedly summoned Saudi officials to a local employee. identify who is involved in killing. Riyadh rejected accusations that the crown prince was involved.
The images of the police report on Turkish televisions showed that a man who pursued Mr. Khashoggi impersonator, runs alongside a man who, according to the police, the local employee & # 39; is in the case. The identity of the man was not immediately clear.
Last week, a UN human rights expert said that Mr Khashoggi had been murdered in a cruel and premeditated murder & # 39; execution by Saudi officials.
Turkish officials are frustrated by what they say is a lack of cooperation by Riyadh and have called for an international investigation.

The killing of Khashoggi caused widespread aversion and defiled the image of crown prince bin Salman, previously admired in the West for pushing deep changes, including tax reform, infrastructure projects and allowing women to ride.
Images of CCTV came to the fore in December in which the body parts of Jamal Khashoggi were reportedly transported in bags and suitcases on the day of his murder in Saudi Arabia.
On the pictures are three men with five suitcases and two big black bags in the house of the Saudi consul general in Istanbul, Turkey.
The residence is a short distance from the Saudi consulate where Khashoggi was massacred in a murder where Riyadh's relations with the West were tested.
Saudi Arabia has also repeatedly rejected Turkish demands to deliver suspects related to the murder of the journalist, a critic of the crown prince.
The journalist had decided to leave his native country of Saudi Arabia for the US in September 2017, but was lured to the embassy in Istanbul in October this year to collect papers for his upcoming marriage.
Listening facilities that were planted by the Turkish intelligence service in the building laid the & # 39; kill-squad & # 39; that the murder had planned in the days before and had it done.
In a Washington Post report, where Khashoggi was a contributing columnist, he said that when he arrived at the consulate, a member of the team asked "if he would take tea."
Shortly thereafter, a member of the Saudi & # 39; kill-squad & # 39; the journalist hesitated against him that he would "go back to Saudi Arabia" before injecting him with a lethal dose of sedative.
Khashoggi's latest air illuminations are audible on tape recordings, officials said to the Washington Post.
They added that there was nothing to assume the team was planning to make Khashoggi alive.
Further reports citing those who have listened to the recordings claim that Khashoggi's last words were to tell his murderers, I can not breathe & # 39;
A few moments after his breath had subsided, the silence on the tape gave way to the sound of an electric saw, according to reports that the body of Khashoggi was torn apart. His mortal remains have never been found.
